I have always believed that the role of the artist is to offer his or her point of view so that those looking at the paintings may better intuit their own ways of seeing.
Until recently the places I painted were physical - the old farmhouse in Changy, the view from the World Trade Center - but I saw my relation to them as exploring the manifestations of humanity.
These places carry the ideas of the cultures that built them, the scattering of things are traces of the people who lived there. It was the representation of a World View.
Since 2003 this interest in place and ideas has taken me into an encounter with genomics, and an ongoing residency at the Broad Institute, a genomics research institute at MIT.
With this new body of work I seem to be looking at the Place which this science is building, and through it, at the novel ways in which we structure our thoughts in the society at large.
I hope you enjoy seeing these images, and find in them substantive points of entry into the flow of ideas that we call contemporary life.
